There are several treatment options for Lichen Planus. These include corticosteroids in the form of a injection, oral, topical, retinoids (synthetic Vitamin A), nonsteroidal creams, antihistamines, phototherapy (as you have already tried), tub soaks with oatmeal, cool compresses, etc. In some patients a combination of the treatment options need to be tried together to better improve the outcomes. I see that you have not tried retinoids or antihistamines that would be a next step. If you already are not in touch with a dermatologist that is highly recommended.
